“Small businesses are at the heart of the Biden-Harris Administration’s economic agenda as we know they power our nation’s historic economic growth and job creation,” said Isabella Casillas Guzmán, U.S. Small Business Administrator, at the presentation of a new virtual SBA program that allows small businesses to have access to the resources and networks of the administration amid the current historic period of economic recovery.

The SBA, in association with the Public Private Strategies Institute (PPSI) launched Building a Better America: A Small Business Resource Community (also known as the BBA Resource Community) through which it seeks to connect the 32.5 million small companies included in their records with the aid Washington is offering.

Spearheading the Biden Administration's commitment to increasing competition, rebuilding supply chains, and investing in American ingenuity, "the BBA Resource Community will be an important tool to help enhance the Small Business Administration’s larger effort to ensure that entrepreneurs in rural and urban communities across America have the resources they need to capitalize on this historic moment for economic development for generations to come.”


The initiative will offer small entrepreneurs a series of free training sessions that will grant them access information and make use of the new opportunities that the Investment in Infrastructure and Employment Law (Bipartisan Infrastructure Law) offers.

Additionally, through the BBA Resource Community, various small business leaders and economic development representatives will host informational sessions that will enable owners to expand their business networks and connect with stakeholders.

The statement also highlights the words of Rhett Buttle, president of the PPSI:

The small business landscape has been transformed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Rapid changes in our economy, and small business leaders need the most up-to-date information and resources to continue to grow, innovate, and thrive.
